For your kind congratulations upon this ocuaslon you will pleago accept ray heartfelt thanks. I am grateful to the pcoplo of tho stnto upon tho renewed expression of their confidence in summoning mo for tho second limo to accept tho high and honorable position of chief executivo of tho Empire stale. Especially is my profound acknowledgment duo to tho citizen i of Albany, who, without dis tinction of parly, gavo me sitoh'a flat tering and enthusiastic support. Per mit mo to observe, in panning, that I I shall eve remember with pleasant as sociations connected with my official residence among llio hospitable pooplo of this ancient, oipiial city. "Enough! The new government and perhaps thnmajoritiesof tho two house-", nro plcdiod. iiolijuply to thpi pr?s(itit high tariff,, but fin augmentation of it according to tho republiciu senate bill, which will prove a pyramid of taxa tion that thu world ha never seon be fore. How far such a policy will pre vail can only bo solved when it is put in force. All, prophecies must in litis strange country oo futile. When forty years ago tho stubborn and Bhort-t-ighted slavery oligarchy insisted on not only repealing tho Missouri com promise but trying to plant slavery in tho territoric-i, thoy doomed iheircauso as much as did Nero doom tho cause of the temples of Jupiter and Venus wnen io lighted his golden palace with the Christian martyrs of whom ho niado torches. It is the insolence of pride and oppression that goes before de struction. History repeats itself. Tho monop oly of oligarchy is Bimply repeating tho folly of the slavery oligarchy of forty years ago. Thank lion, au eco nomic revolution is not subject to bloodbhed. But that there will be an economio revolution of such intensity that will deluge this land with bank ruptcies and ruin for years is as clear as the sun at noonday. "1 do not affect to conceal my grati fication over tho result of the 'guber natorial contest, in this state. Our opponents unwisely entered upon a lampaign of personal detraction, and they pow discover their mistake. Tbe timo has passed when such weap ons of political warfare can acomp lisli much among tho intelligent aud dicern'iig people of a great state liko ours. Tin; pooplo are opposed to vilification, to hypocrisy aud sham, and ptefcr fairplay nd frankness in pol itics as well as in business. I have uo uii'nnd words or personal views to express upon this; occasion concern ing tho violent opposition which I encountered in some quarters, except to say thai I was unquestionably for tunato ill my enemies. Always con scions of my personal and ofhcial rec titude and of mv loyalty and devo tion to tho democratic party and to its candidates and princiUes, I awaited tho verdict of tho people with an nbid in" faith and an unshaken coufidenco in tho result. THE NATIONAL DEFEAT. 'Our success in thu gubernatorial contest is marred, however, by tbo shadow o( national disaster. In com mon with every true democrat, iiroaily reuret tho defeat of President Cleveland in tho state and in tho union. Ho deserved better at tho hands of tho people of tins country, Honest, bravo and courageous, ho gal antlv led his party in lue in-eat con test for tariff lefoun and suffers defeat owinc to tho false clamor, uuiiist pre indices, unfair representations and the gigantic and combined efforts of all t in monopolists oi ino country, ue did his duty as he understood it, re nardhssof personal or political con siderations, and ho should have besn sustained by the taxpayers, consumers and masses ot tho people, wnrse trno inti re-ts ho desired to Bnbserve and whoso rights he unselfishly endeavored to maintain. TAItlFK IIEKOI1M. "It is not neotssary or profitablo to inquire whether tno l sue unicu no so boldly made might not moro wisely bavo been earlier presentsd or pot- poind to a later period. It if sufficient to say that as tha tru-ted leader of thu democratic naitv, alter a lull aim cire ful consideration ot urn wiioio suuject he deemed that tho best and truest in eiests of tho country rtquired that the i-siio should be mudo at this crisis and with that patiiotio and deliberate conoluMon, when encu leached, there should have been prompt acquiescence. Tho principle of taritt retorni has only met with' temporary di feat. Soon er or laltr it will ultimately triumph in this country, l'resideut Ule eland and ilia deinocra.io party wera right and no served to succeed. Tho argument was with us, and two wtiks longer discus lon w ould have given us the victory Porrait mo to suggest that there must bo no back track taken upon this question.

Tern norarv disaster must not bo permitted to dUeourago us in our uusellish efforts to relievo tho people trom unjust an unnecessary taxation, iemporary ox pedicnls will only cudanger or postpon our filial triumph. Let us steadfastly adhere to tho prineipln of tariff reform and tho clouds that now ouscuiu ou pathway will soon pass away.

Our opponents will soon discover thu truth of ibis statement Thev will bo obliged to abandon their own uational platform because ll was too radical.' '1 heir owu senate tariff bill was a partial abandonment of it and further deparlun s nro inevitable. Tho democratic party did not favor frt trade, and will nn. hen after favor it, The pcoplo must not bo permitted to misundumand our position, but from this time forward let us continue the discussion of tills question till It is fully comprehended by every intolllgent eleo lor in tho country.'1 oTATK ISSUES. Tn closing Governor Hill said : "Per mit mo to objervo that our victory up on statu issues means that tho peoplo of this state aro opposed to illiberal ami unjust sumptuary legislation and favor a just and equitablo oxciso law rigor ously enforced. Thoy want uniform exciso legislation, applicable alike in nil parts of tho state. They demand that exciso revenues, liko all othor proper local revenues, should go into local treasuries rather than into the treasury of tho slate. Tho pooplo aro opposod to hypocritical 'tomperauco' legislation, so called, not honestly de signed to aubsorvo tho cause of trno temperance, but iutondod only for political (ffeot." Stop Eleotion Debauchery. It is possiblo that political debauch ery controlled tho lato Presidential election ; but if it did, it was not for want of equal effort to debauch voters by tho defeated party. If debauchery won, it was simply becauso Quay possessed greater skill or resources, or both, than Barnuin could command ; for both sides did all that was pos-iblo to sontrol tho result by corruption funds. It is possible that corrupt ef forts, gigantic 'as thoy were, so nearly equalled Ihcusclves in both parties that the lesult waj not decided by do bauchery t but the fact remains that debauchery was the rule m every de- batnblo state, and that Indiana was an open auction for individual votes. is this ureal and steadily crowing politioal debauchery to coutinuo t If so, it will logically increase with each atioual contest, lor a slate or a voter onco controlled iy coiruption lunos ill not only always be in open market but debauchery will rapidly Bpread among tho peoplo aud require increased conuption funds lor every contest. And it is idle to preach morality to party leaders. While religious and moral zealots will freely contribute money for political debauchery, leaders will commend it and rival voters will ffer their votes in tho market-place. The evil, now colossal in its proportions can be overthrown only by tearing up tho wholo system of Presidential elect ions bv Slates. And why should not the pooplo of ho United States vote directly for resident and Vice President, from Maine to California, and tho candidates receiving tbo highest popular vole bo declared elected 1 It is in pufect har mony with tho theory of popular gov ernment and why adow the expression of tho people to become tho plaything of Klectoral Uolleges 7 It is not pro tended that Presidential Klectors oxer cis any discretion in voting fr,r Presi dent aud Vice I'nsident. J. hey woro oricinally intended to exeiciso an in tellig- nt and dispassionate judgment in voting for the two fir-t ofliccs of tho Republic, but now and ever since the re tirement of Washington, Piesidential Electors have been as positive partisans as waid heelers, and tho whole theory on which tho JUoctorai uoiicgu was base i, perished before tha advent of tho present century. Four years ago Urovor Cleveland re ceived a popular majority over James ti. lilaino ot 1)2,01)1), and yet a change of COO voles in New York would bavo made Blaino Piesidont. This year Benjamin Harriscn will have a popular majority over Urovor Ulovoland ot probably o9,00t, and yet a change of 0,000 votes in New York State would havo re eleoted Cleveland. In 1884 the 81,000 majority tor Blaino in Pennsylvania had much less voice in deciding tho Presidential contest than tho 1,100 majority lor (Jloveland in New York ; and now the 70,000 ma jority for Harrison in this state iB much Itss potential that) tho probable 10,000 majority in tho Empiro State. Less than 400 votes give Cleveland C Electoral votes in Connecticut and 30,- 000 votes give Harrison ouiy 4 Eleo, toial votes in Vermont. In Texas 120,000 votes give Cleveland 13 Elec toral votts, and probably less tiian .ri,000 votes give Harrison 15 Electoral votts in Indiana. It is this cumbrous aud senseless electoral system that invites the de bauchery ot voters in every close state, aud it is also a const int menace to tho popular will in tho election of a Presi dent. It should be promptly a olished as tho fruitful parent of electoral crimes and as tho most threatening of all tho patent perils to frto government. If the people of every Stalo and Territory were author xed to vote directly for their favorite candidates for President and Vice President, with tho assurance that the candidates receiving tho larg est number of voles would bo declared elected, the- debauchery of close States would end at once. What could it matter then whether Now York, Con necticut, Indiana, West Virginia or California gavo a fow thousand more or less for a particular candidate 1 A majority in a particular State would bo ol no practical moment, and the miss tons of the piofesstonal corrupter of votors and of professional traders in votes would end. Is this not tho trno and safe way for a free govornmont to elect its rulers T A direct vote for President and Vico President would not only end tho now great and steadily growth in debauchery of uloso states, but it would end all ftp prehensions of dispute as to the election Tho closest popular vole in all our Presidential elections since the organ ization of the government was in 1880, when Garfield reooiTod about 7,000 popular majority over Hancock. In all other ojntests from Washington down to tho battle of 1888, t ho popular majority has been so deculedtliat nono could ntteniptn toassnil it. Anoth er strong roasog for abandoning the Electoral Collo e is in tho fact that it has twice defeatod candidates to whom tho pcoplo gavo decidedly tho largest vote. Jackson was defeated in 182 1 when ho had 50,000 majority over Adam0, anil Tilden was dufcated in 1870 when the pcoplo had voted against naves by .'au.wu majority. Is it not time to end tho appalling political debauchery of tho present age and end ill peril to the popular will, by abolishing tho Electoral College and allowing tho peoplo to elect 1'resldent and Vice President by a direct vote Times A lady tourist on rue's reaic was struck h lightii'hg ot the very top of tho mountain away above the cloud from which the bolt proceeded. 1888. A Hawk Attaoks A Man Rockland. Pn., Nov. 10. James P. Schacffer of this placo had a remark nblo experience with a chicken hawk a fow days ago. Ho was driving along tho, road, nod had seen tho hawk sail ing about high in tho air for Home time. I'inally ho noticed that tho bud was rapidlyidesccnding, nnd, supposing that it was droimimr ilnwn tin tirnv nf sotno kind, stopped liis team to watch tho result of the attack. Whether, tho hawk concluded that Schacffer was there to autagonizo it in its efforts to get' a dinner, and deter mined to resent interference, Schacffer is not abletO'.explain, but ho was not long in discovering that he himself wa the objccV of the big bird's attack. It swooped down upon him with ter riblo floret ness, struck at him savagely Willi bom beak and talons, and then alighted on tho ground at tho roadside, whero it put itself in unmistakable fighting position. Hchaeucr was greatly surprised at this attack, but, supposing that it wouldn't be much of a trick to whip a chicken hawk, ho got out of his wagon. Ho had scarcely placed his feet on the ground when tho hawk rushed at him, half flying and half running. Schacf fer met tho bird with a vigorous kick in the breast, but that, only had the ci feet of adding to its race. Tho man quickly made up his mind that ho had met an antagonist a little louglipr than he had counted cn, and, grabbing a stick from tho roadside, went into the fight in earnest. lietore oohaeiter could effectively use his club on tho fierce and active hawk it had ripped his clothes with its tilons as if the rcnis had been mado with a sharp knife, and laid the flesh open in great gashes on his face, legs and shoulders. At last a lucky blow with tho club stunned the bird, and be fore it could recover SchacfTer des patched it. Ho was so badly hurt that ho had to return homo and get medical attend ance. Ho is still housod up. The hank measured nearly six feet from lip to tip of its wings, and Schacffer says tbat he believes it would hayo got tho best of him if ho had not been lucky enough to find tho club within his reach. Such a wild attack on a man by a hawk, a bird naturally shy of tho human pnsence, is undoubtedly without a precedent. A Baggage Master Bebuked- M. IJUAD TAKES A TBIP ON THE RAIL I10AD AND HAS A LITTLE FUN. In going down to tho Jersey coast by way cf New York, or, rather by Jersey City, I reached that point trunk less. I went over the river and oon Bulted the baggago agent, and after telegraphing to various points it waa toand that they had been lelt m tho etatiop at Buffalo. The baggageman there lnd throo hours in which to get them aboard, but ho had singled me out as a victim. Everybody elses iks had come alonir, but mine had been held over for a lest. 1 couldn't kick ou a man 300 miles away, but I av for him. All tho while I was fish ing and sailing I nursed my wrath to ep it warm, and bix weeks later 1 walked in thu baggago oflico at Buf falo. I had the documents to back mo up, and I said: 'On July 22 1 passed through here. I was ticketed to Jersey City straight er than a string, and before I left De troit I saw that my checks were al right:" "Weill' "Well you loft my trunks right here for twenty-four hours." "Quito likely." "And now you must pay for your carelessness." "What!" "Hero is a bill of expense made by your ueclect of duty. Thero's $G for three of us at a hotel over night. I paid an expressman seventy-five cents. paid another tho same. 1 had to hire a hack to carry 1110 about in Jer soy City, and that is twelve shillings moro. 1 ho total expense is irl), to say nothini; ot my tune and worry and a day lost." "And you expect mo to pay! ' " 1 ou 11 either pay or Hi biincr suit and send for thh general baggage agent as a witness. "Well, you aro a crank! "No I am not. 1 simply kick when imposed upon. The road guaranteed to deliver 1110 Mild my baggage iu Jer Bey City at a certain hour all right un less accident prevented. I hero was no accident." Ho stormod around for n while aud then paid me, and I divided the moucy between two cripples at the door, lie said I was the meanest man he ever saw, but it was a lesson ho will never forget. Another Woman Murdered. THE WlllTECHAl'Kl. FIEND ADDS ONE MOItE TO THE LIST, London, Nov. 9, Tho murder fiend has added added another to his list of victims. At 11 0 clock this morning tho body of a woman cut into pieces was discovered in a houso on Dorset street, Smtalfields. Tho polioe are en deavorinc to traok the murderer with tho nid ot bloodhounds. Tho remains were mutilated in tho same horrible manner 09 were thoso of tho other women murdered in Whitechapel. Tho victim, liko all tho others, was a disreputable woman, bho was married and her husband was a porter. They had lived together at Fpasmodio inter vals, Her narao is believed to havo been Lizzio Fisher, but to most of. the habitues of the haunts she was known as Mary Jane. Sho had a room in th house where sho was murdered. Sho carrioi a latch key, and no one knows nt what hour she entered the houso last night, and probably no ono saw tho nvm who accompanied her. There, lore it is hardly likely that ho will ever bo Identitled. llo might easily hav left tho houso at any timo between 1 and 0 o'clock this morning without attracting 'attention, Tho doctors who have cxatnlntjd thp remains refuse to irako any statenietil until tho inquest ts held. The bloodhounds belonging to pri vate citizens wcro taken to tho placo where the body lies and placed on the scout of tho murderer, but thoy wire uuablo to keep it for any great dutance, anil all hopes of running tho nssm.-iu down with their assistance will have to bo abandoned.

An encouraging sign from a physi cal standpoint is the largely increas ing number of women who nro taking up thoso out-door sports in which health and pleasure go hand in hand. Perhaps tho most beneficial sport is that of tricycling, nnd these crisp autumnal days aro better than any other timo of tho year to enjoy a rido between tho wheels. The womon of America do not rido as much as their transatlantic sisters, but they aro fast finding out that if thoy wish to com peto with the English women in con stitutional vigor thoy must lead a lifo into which open air athletic creatio'-s moro largely enter. Tho advantages of tho trioyclo havo only been realized in this country a few years, but in that timo it has beoomo wonderfully popular and every month finds a great increase in the number 01 laay trioy- . ... -, r,. i cle riders. In Eniiland, Queen Viotoria, tho Princess Louise, tho Princo of Wales, two of his daughters, and hundreds of noblo birth uso tho tricycle. In this country, Hov. Honry Ward Beech er. Rev. Geo. P. Pentecost, and. Sena tor William M. Evarts woro enthu siasts on the subject. President Cleve land, when in Buffalo, often used a friend's trioycle, and when ho removed to Washington ho was presented with one for his own use. At tho capital, many of the leading physicians now rido trioyclos in mak ing calls on their pationts. Dr. Rob ert Reyburu, who was ono of Gar field's surgical attendants; Dr. John Walter, of tho Georgetown University, and Dr. J. Tiber Johnson, who was Charles Sumner's physician, all uso them. TIHCVOLINO IN l-IIILADKLriHA. The growth ol tricycling in this city has kept pace with tho impi-ovo-ment of tho thoroughfares. The as phalt street) havo been great factors in this development and there aro now between two and throo hundred ladies who rido the wheels. This is not con sidered a bad showing for a city the streets of which are mostly paved with rough cobble-stones. Of this number soma are regular members of tho clubs.

Tho next thing to bo taught is tho laws themselves and with tho laws, and of even greator importance, tho habit of obeying them. We know a great deal more than we put inpractico. This is tho fault of tho common modes' of health teaching. Our newspapers and periodical literature contains a vast deal of popular instruction iu theso matter. Thoy aro treated of id ,an abundance of well-written books which aro within easy reach of all who caro to read them. Oar schools are taking hold of the good work, and instruction in iiygienn is fast coming to be recog nized as an essential of even an element ary education. But all these do not reach tbe evil, or if thoy do, ihey only touch it on tho surface. Our schools aro full of good gram marians who do not use respectable, Euglish in common conversation. So, too, they may be full of glib reciters of tho laws of health, who do not.observo a Binglo one of tho laws they hayo learned. 1 ho main point is to secure obedioncc. The greatest criminals are usually well versed in the laws of the land ; but their knowledge does not, avail to keep them out of the peniten tiary when tbey have broken these laws. Neither will a knowlcdgo of tho laws of health keep a man from being sick, so long as he does not live up to his knowledge. Wo ore creatures of imitation. Example counts counts for more than ptec-pt. The patent knows the law, aud the child knows it too. When tho parent keeps it, then the children will keop it also. It docs little good for a child to learn at school that tho food should bu properly mast cat-id, when three times every day at homo ho sees a huugrv group crowd about the table liko pigs around a trough, and bolt their food as nearly wholo as it can b? made to go down. Tho child whose mother gives it a bito of some thing to eat ovcry timo it cries for it, will not be in a condiliou to profit from an understanding of the law that food should not be taken between meals, until it is too lato for tho knowlcdgo to bo of much service. The law of pure air aud proper ventilation mav be taught over so plainly in tho tex -Looks, out 10 tuo boy wno is urougui up 10 sit and to sleep in a close, unvt inflated room, foul with the breath of living boiugs, aud shun fresh air as ho would a plague, thu knowledge will be of little avail. While his father's cellar is filled with decaying meat, vegetables and all manmr of tilth, and tho cess pool smells to heaven from beneath tho kitchen window, all the teachings of tho pchools will not prevent his having typhoid fever, or diphtheria, or sonio lorin ot lilt li disease, when tbo summer sun calls into activity tho germs ot disease which are latent there. If liquors aro kept upon tho sideboard aud wines are served upon tho tablo in his home, not all tho teachings ol all the temperance toxt-b.ioks in the land can bo relied upon to produce in him habits of sobriety and total abstinence. T. ; . .1... i f .1... ; e ji is ino pniuuuu ui niu principles ui bygieuo in our homes, and this alone, which will lessen the rate of disaso and death to-day, and develop a sttong er raco to-moiro'w. The child who had learn ud tho laws of hi tilth from his father and mother by seeing them con tinually and persistently applied, will comi to follow them in his own case, as he will conduct hiins It properly in good society, if good society has been his birthright, and gent lomauly conduct has become habitual.

Tho decision of the Supre mu Couit of the Stntes given by JusticoWillialns in Pittsburg on Monday last sets aside tho entiro new lien law passed by the Inst Legislature on tho broad ground that it is unconstitutional. TheLegis- laturo strangely omitted to reoite tho lien laws ot 18110 and 1815 which it in tended to amend, aud that U bo oloarly in disregard of a positive mandato of tho Coiihtilut:on that the Supremo Court could do no less than declare tho act null and void. Tho effect of tho decision of the Sup remo Court wi'l bo to destroy all liens entered against properties by individu al mechanics or material men dealing with sub contractors. Many such havu been entered during thu last year, instead of claiming and entering them only "ou tho basis of a contract, ex. pirssed or implied, with the owner and on the credit of tho building,'' as tho Sup.-cme Court defines thu rights; nnd all such lieni will be valueless and tho oosts will tall upon thoso who entered them. This decision of tho court ol last ro- sort does not comprise tho mechanics' lions of the State, except as thoy havo been entered by individuals or dealers with tub contractors under tho net of January 17, 1HS7. The acts of 1880 and lo 15, with tho judicial decisions mado under them, remain in lull force, and all liens entered by material men or mechanics in nrcordano with iho old lawp, a nine-tenths of a'l hao been, aro valid liens and fully piottct parlies in their claims.
